‘Star Trek: Picard’ Season 2 Trailer Has A Major Character Making Their Long-Awaited Comeback

Today is #FirstContactDay, which is basically the Star Trek answer to Star Wars Day. It’s a way of promoting all things Star Trek, and since Paramount+ is basically the only place where you can see the franchise right now, that makes this the perfect time for a teaser of Star Trek: Picard season 2, which arrives next year. What’s been happening in it? To Hell if I know! But I do know one of my all-time favorite characters named after a letter in the alphabet is returning.

No, it’s not Mr. T.  You know it’s the immortal being Q who  is coming back for the second season of Picard season 2, with John de Lancie taking on the role again. How will he make Picard’s life miserable this time? Well, as he says in the new teaser, “The trial never ends.”  I guess he’ll be doing this to poor Jean-luc until the day the old guy dies, and probably beyond.
